Electronic Components

[ IOP-EC ]

The Internet of Production Alliance and Kitspace are bringing together interested parties to draft a new standard for open electronics design-data. This standard will focus on design information and documentation of electronics components, assemblies and sub-assemblies.

Specification goals


To aide ease of repair of electronics through documentation.


To aide the adaptation and repurposing of electronics hardware through study of design information and to promote interoperability of software tooling.


To aide sharing of standardised design documentation for manufacturing leading to more reproducable hardware.


To allow mapping of the availability of required components, tools and skills for production and repair through compatibility with the Open Know-Where Specification.
